Informed-Choice is a quality-assurance certification for sports nutrition products.
The OptiMSM branded methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) ingredient from Bergstrom Nutrition (Vancouver, WA) is now touting Informed-Choice certification in the U.S., the European Union, and by distributors outside of the EU. Informed-Choice is a quality-assurance certification for sports nutrition products.
Bergstrom Nutrition has offered OptiMSM with Informed-Choice certification in 2014 specifically in the European Union; it since decided to expand certification domestically and to distributors outside the EU.
Informed-Choice certification testing involves skip-lot testing on a monthly basis for banned substances. “The Informed-Choice raw material certification provides assurance that OptiMSM production lots are regularly tested for substances considered prohibited in sport. In addition, Informed-Choice also ensures ingredients are manufactured to high quality standards,” said Bergstrom Nutrition in a press release.
